Ahead Of The Game



This little peanut is 7 months. For those that have followed along via social media and/or this blog, you’ve seen the progression from early pregnancy to birth to now 7 months old. All I can say is that she is hitting milestones earlier than we ever would have imagined. She started rolling at 3 1/2 months, holding her bottle at 5 months, sitting up at 6 months andshe’s now on the verge of crawling.

So, when people ask me if I’d recommend BabyPlus to my friends, my answer is a most certain yes! I LOVE what BabyPlus has done for my daughter. Not only has she been hitting milestones early, but she is the most calm and joyful baby I’ve ever met. If you want to hear from more parents who have used BabyPlus, visit our website.

Two Pregnancy Must Haves

The two things that I think are essential for any pregnancy are BabyPlus



and the book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Dr. Marc Weissbluth.



Here’s why:

  1. BabyPlus. BabyPlus has done everything it claims to. I have such an easy baby. She latched right away and is a great eater to this day. She’s attentive, yet relaxed and very go-with-the-flow. She’s accomplished milestones earlier than most, which include rolling over at 3 1/2 months and sleeping 12 hours a night since she was 9 weeks old. She is honestly such an easy baby and I believe BabyPlus has played a huge part in that!
  2. Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child. This book has been a God-send. Seriously, we have followed it pretty closely and our daughter is the happiest baby you could ever meet. There have been times when she’s tried getting out of her sleep habits and we’ve followed the guide, and she’s back to normal the next day. I do recommend reading this while pregnant because you will actually retain the information. Don’t wait until you’ve already had your little one and your already sleep deprived.

Looking for that next perfect shower gift. The two mentioned above are definitely my recommendation!

Babyplus In Exactly 200 Words


I LOVE BabyPlus. I used this for my first pregnancy (and only one so far), and I will definitely use it for my next. My baby was born 23 days early and was so alert and responsive from birth. She latched right away and has been such a great eater ever since. I nurse her and she even takes bottles at any temperature at the sitter’s house.

Additionally, she is the best sleeper ever. She started sleeping through the night at 9 weeks and has continued to do so now, even at four months. I can put her down anywhere and she’ll go right to sleep. Plus, she sleeps great around any environments she’s in.

My BabyPlus baby rolled over at just 3 1/2 months old! She has also been very aware of her surroundings from the very beginning. She has great reflexes and was able to hold her head up right away. My pediatrician has been very impressed with the milestones she’s already reached at such an early age.

I absolutely LOVE this product and would definitely recommend it. I honestly feel bad telling everyone how awesome my baby is when they are struggling with theirs. Buy it!

My Great Eater


I can’t imagine a life without BabyPlus. Thanks to BabyPlus, I have the worlds easiest baby! I almost feel bad saying that because I know it can be difficult for those that don’t. But seriously, I could not be more thankful for what BabyPlus has done for my little one.

The hospital I delivered at required one hour of skin-on-skin time, which I was thankful for. During that time, they had me nurse my sweet daughter. And, she latched right away. Avalyn was three weeks early, so they were very surprised by that. Not only was she a great eater right from the beginning, but she continues to be even 4 1/2 months later!

So, to those still considering whether or not BabyPlus is for you. I can tell you…it is. Don’t be a skeptic, just give it a try. I’ve been impressed over and over again with what it’s done for my daughter. Just give it a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Why Take A Breastfeeding Class

My husband and I recently took a breastfeeding class and I must say that it was extremely helpful. I’ve known so many moms who have tried to jump right in without really knowing much about the process. While this works for some, I’ve seen it prove difficult for others. I’m delivering at Community North in Indianapolis and they have great classes and options for parents-to-be. So, we decided to take the class to see what we could learn and we were pleasantly surprised.


Here’s why we found it so helpful:

  • Learned from a qualified instructor. We were learning from someone who is around it all day, every day rather than people who have just read about it or tried it a few times.
  • Covered the basics. Our instructor gave us great information on what we really needed to know:
    • How breastfeeding works
    • How to establish a good milk supply
    • How to get your baby to latch
    • How to know if your baby is getting enough milk
    • Positions for breastfeeding
    • When and where to get help should you need it
  • Debunked myths. Again, our instructor did a great job of encouraging us rather than sharing horror stories. She even challenged many of the stories and gave examples and helpful ways to combat those difficulties many moms may face.
  • A support system. We left knowing we had support. So many moms find breastfeeding difficult because they receive all the help they need in the hospital, then leave and feel alone and unsupported. Our instructor gave us real support systems we could use after the baby has arrived.

My recommendation would be to take as many classes as you can. You can never be too prepared when it comes to parenting.
